Tasmaniaís east coast boasts sugar white sandy beaches and crystal clear water. With highlights like the famous Wineglass Bay and the magical Bay of Fires, this tour is an awesome experience and an awesome bargain! Itís perfect if you only have a very short time in Tasmania.
Day 2 - This morning thereís an optional activity ($20pp) to check out some unique Tasmanian animals at East Coast Natureworld wildlife sanctuary. We arrive at feeding time for the Tasmanian devils, wombats, echidnas and koalas and other wildlife who call the park home.
Now itís time to pack a picnic lunch as we check out another Tassie icon - the gorgeous sparkling waters of Wineglass Bay in Freycinet National Park. I hope you had your Weetbix because this is a walk that will get the heart pumping, with the reward of fantastic views at the top of the lookout.
Later we stop in at Coles Bay and Kateís Berry Farm on our way down the spectactular coast road to Hobart.
The East Coast Adventure (2.5 Day) & East Coast PLUS (2 Day) tour groups travel together. The only difference is that the East Coast PLUS includes a transfer bus to allow people in Hobart to join the tour group in Launceston plus one night of accommodation in Launceston.
If you are planning to join this tour and have not already booked flights, we recommend that you fly into Launceston and join the tour there - this is the easiest & lowest cost option.

Day 1 - This morning we head north-east to the incredible Sideling Lookout, stop to admire the amazing memorial carvings at Legerwood and taste the cheesy delights of the Pyengana Dairy Company.
In the afternoon itís time for the highlight of the day - the stunning Bay of Fires. Named Lonely Planetís Number 1 destination for 2009, the bay has some of the whitest sand and clearest water youíll ever see. Take your time to explore the beach, swim in the turquoise waters or simply admire the view over a coffee!
In the evening we arrive at our accommodation in the seaside town of Bicheno. As darkness falls head to the beach to see the fairy penguins come ashore to nest.
